  • Depending on the type of installation - surface-/ or flush-mounted, with or without cover - the specific location of the control knob positions may vary.
  • If combining several Vario appliances of the 400 series, a connection strip VA 420 must be placed between the appliances. Depending on the type of installation, the corresponding connection strip must be provided.
  • The bearing capacity and stability,
    in the case of thin countertops in
    particular, must be supported using
    suitable substructures. Take into
    account the appliance weight and
    additional loads.
  • Flush installation is possible in countertops made of stone, synthetics or solid wood. Heat resistance and watertight sealing of the edges must be observed. For other materials, please consult with your countertop manufacturer.
  • The groove must be continuous and even, so that uniform placing of the appliance on the gasket is ensured. Do not use discontinuous lining.
  • The joint width may vary due to size tolerances of the combinations and of the countertop cut-out.
  • If installing several appliances in individual cut-outs allow for a division bar of inimum 1 " (50 mm) between the individual cut-outs.
  • Plan for an electrical connection (the appliance is not operable without power supply).
  • Air intake from above.
  • No intermediate shelf required.
  • The rear panel must consist of a non-flammable material. Wall trims must be resistant to heat.
  • A minimum lateral clearance of at least 12" from adjacent heat-sensitive furniture or contact surfaces must be observed or thermal insulation fitted.
  • Installation in a 36" wide lower cabinet is required.
  • The combination with VL 414 is not recommended, since the air extraction from the centre burner cannot be guaranteed due to the distance.
